Commentary from the Mile High City

The Denver Post editorialized (while I was gone) about the need to support the State Fair, and its desire to keep from privatizing it. "After all," they say, "the real drain isn't the fair, it's the maintenance of the fairgrounds the rest of the year." So, why don't we do what San Diego has done (until now) with the Boy Scouts, and let them rent the fairgrounds for use, at a discounted rate, if they provide improvements?

Given recent court rulings, one risk might be that the state will become dependent on this sort of deal. That the Boy Scouts will get kicked out, and replaced with gay and atheist groups. And that, as a condition of continuing their "service," they'll make certain unacceptable demands about the fair's content.
